Dear Social Justice Supporter!
The CERB was essential when the pandemic first hit. We would argue that it should have continued longer if not until this day. Too many are still facing too many challenges!
Manitoba is the province with the highest rates of child poverty in Canada. More than 88,000 kids and their families live in poverty. Please join us in calling on the federal government to implement an income tested CERB Amnesty: Sign the petition!
PETITION CLOSES April 23rd, 2021
You may be someone who received CERB during the worst of the panic caused by the pandemic. If you would like to share your story, please do so here.
If you are able to work though, we did want to share a number of opportunities from some of our community partners. Please check out the links on our Employment Opportunities page.
New data shows child poverty in Manitoba is on the rise, a situation worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic. In collaboration with Campaign 2000 and Make Poverty History Manitoba, we are releasing this new polling research showing Manitobans strongly support increased funding to help people living in poverty, ahead of Manitoba’s Budget 2021.
